Off Road 2nd printing by seangordonmurphy

/ / / ©2010-2018 seangordonmurphy
For those of you who couldn't get your hands on a copy of Off Road before they sold out...

BEHOLD! A second printing! This time through IDW!

I don't know when this will be out, but sometime after my exclusive with DC is done.

*Off Road was my first creator owned book that I did in 2003. It came out through Oni in 2005 and even won an ALA award--whatever that is. The art is more indy--nothing like Hellblazer or Joe the Barbarian. But it IS in black and white (for those people yelling at me for letting my stuff be colored).

I was 23 when I wrote the script and completed most of the art, so it feels a little dated. Still, I'd give it a solid B.

Huzzah, grabbed the second print the moment it's cover crossed my line of vision. Amazing work, and so young a talent!

Love the new cover (this color style suits your work a lot better) I went through a lot to get the 1st print on eBay (or amazon marketplace don't recall) and I had one hell of a good time reading it, picked it up and couldn't drop it until I was done.

More than a 'B'.

Love this cover, love the style!

This is, and always will be, my favorite graphic novel. I was thrilled when you signed it at NYC ComicCon, saying "This is the most worn and loved copy I've ever signed." I bring it with me whenever I travel.

Fan-tastic. A former co-worker of mine found himself in this situation in someone else's Jeep. Very nice.

I really love the rocks and plants. They really remind me of Bill Watterson. And the character who is muscular is cool, because he looks like a muscular REAL PERSON (oh, snap!).

Hi Sean, I'm a great fan of you, from Spain. And I'm trying to buy more of your works, I've got Joe the Barbarian complete miniseries, but I'm trying to find your work on Hellblazer. Do you know if there is a TPB from Dc Comics? Thanks.
seangordonmurphy Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2010
Thanks. No Hellblazer out yet (except issue 245 and 246), but that'll change when this newer stuff I've been posting comes out this October 13th.

I still have my copy of your '05 edition on my bookshelf! "Dated" or not, it is still totally rad.

woohoo! \^_^/
JudeDeluca Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2010
Exactly HOW MUCH does this book go for?
incognitomestizo Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2010
I dig the cover a great deal, not just because of the spiffy lines and colors and whatnot, but also because I've been there. Very nice.

I saw this graphic novel in the library and piked it up. I freaking love it so I want to buy one but I cant seem to find any places that will sell it.
I love the story,the characters and the plot. :heart:
RyanOttley Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2010  Professional Artist
It gets an A- from me. It's awesome to the point where it makes me envious, that's where the minus comes in. Good to hear it's coming out again, it really is a well done book that many more people need the chance to see.
seangordonmurphy Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2010
Thanks man. Didn't know you'd read it. Aw shucks...
RyanOttley Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2010  Professional Artist
Of course I read it, and Outer Orbit too!
d00li Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2010
You mean to tell me I didn't have to break my piggy bank and pay 50+ bucks to read this?! It was totally worth it anyhow.
ACZamudio Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2010  Professional
Awesome! I'll definitely look into it!
jtchan Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2010  Professional Interface Designer
Loved this book! It made me go, "Who's this Sean Murphy guy? He's pretty good!" :P

Glad it's going into a second printing.

ME Likey!!
tuntole Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2010

kevinemeinert Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2010
this is still one of my favs of all time. I can't wail till this comes out again, I only own one copy....and everyone trys to steal it. I am lucky enough to have one of the original pages hanging onmy wall.
seangordonmurphy Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2010
Thanks for the purchase(s). :)
n8creek Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2010
I discovered your work through this book back in 2006.
AdanFlores Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
i like all you stuff!!
oooJ03ooo Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2010
I seriously want this book very badly it reminds me of Calvin and Hobbes. And I grew up on that stuff so this is kind of like Calvin and Hobbes for my young "adult" years. If that makes any sense at all. Btw Your work is great I'm sure you never get tired of hearing that.
seangordonmurphy Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2010
I love hearing about Calvin and Hobbes. Best comic ever.
